    Following up the Ace Attorney series, Capcom is producing the Perfect Prosecutor series (or maybe just one game, not entirely sure):
    Source: http://weeklygamejournal.blogspot.com/2008/04/famitsu-411.html

    Now, despite the lack of replay value that's pretty much standard with this type of game, I absolutely loved the Phoenix Wright series. I have not yet played Apollo Justice, but I plan on it. Now this, getting to play as Edgeworth, is simply something I don't know if I can wait for.

    FUCK YES.

    This will be especially awesome if it's post-PW2 (I'm not done with 3 or Apollo yet), in terms of storyline.

    I also look forward to the high possibility that the opening case will be against Payne attempting a career change. XD

    Wow, Edgey gets his own game... this should prove interesting playing from the prosecutor's position... though when the Phoenix series makes them out to be the enemy I wonder how they're going to spin it into a "heroic" role for this one...

    Phoenix Wright 2 spoilers referenced:

    During the final case in PW2, Edgeworth returns with a new personal drive as a Prosecutor: It's not about winning or losing, it's about an Attorney and a Prosecutor giving it their all to find the absolute truth. Picking apart each other's cases and reasonings to the finest detail not to humiliate or find victory, but to expose what really happened without a shadow of a doubt.

    Which is like 10 times more epic than real-life courtroom antics. XD

    Anyway, that's what I could see as being the theme behind playing from his perspective.

    I so can't wait, but I hope the sequels have Godot and Gavin in them. I like those guys too. I want to be Godot so I can throw cups of coffee..

    Yeah, what happened to Maya and Pearl?

    Edgeworth is like that bad guy but is really a good guy deep down like Vegita, Zuko from Avatar, Rayek from Elfquest...pretty much my favorite characters from their series. Edgeworth's no different and I'll buy that game.

    Um... I don't think Godot would really be an option, since he
    [spoilers]
    got put on death row for murder. I think they take away your prosecuting license for that. And before the events of PW3 he was in a coma so they can't really put him in before that, either. Ah well. Seeing how the game dealt with his red-o-vision could be a neat effect, though.
    [/spoilers]

    And Gavin is kinda boring anyway. I'd be much more interested in being Franzsiska von karma. She could whip the truth out of people :p .

    Looks like they're even planning on making it third-person, like an old-school adventure game.

    GUMSHOE: Sir, w-what are you doing here this late at night, pal?
    EDGEWORTH: I'm selling these fine leather jackets?

    Except for Ema Skye from Case 1-5, no one from the previous games appear. Maya and Pearl kind of get referenced (presence of DVDs from particular shows), but not directly. The one opportunity for them to appear in the game, they simply don't. You also don't know what happened to them, if anything. You don't see Gumshoe, Edgeworth, or any meaningful characters from game 3.

    :lol 

    That's the second largest monkey head I've ever seen used as evidence...

    I noticed the third person stuff and the sprite sheet. Edgey runs kinda funny. The DS seems perfectly suited for that kinda stuff though, with the mouselike control options presented by the touchscreen. Exciting!

    Slightly OT:

    I went by EB today on a whim and...someone had returned Apollo Justice. And I got it for 20 bucks (CDN).

    This is a sign that Edgeworth is watching over me.
